MoPac is requiring that interested and committed teams submit an application by 11:59PM (PST) October 31, 2016. To submit, email completed application package to president@mopacca.org.

A selection committee, consisting of curlers from multiple MoPac Clubs will consider the following when making team selections: past curling history (including league, bonspiel, competitive play, participation in camps or other training), history of playing together as a team, willingness to grow and improve the sport, and positive representation of the spirit of curling. There is no regional playdown for this event.
